Taking an unusual look at the role of movies in interpreting personal life experience, the author recounts a series of visits to his native New Orleans as he attempts to dissect the convoluted relationship between himself, his past, his family, the city, and the movies. "My Reel Story" suggests that without the movies, something called America or self or family or hometown would be radically different.
